Ashland, Oregon was awarded Gold status on Monday as a renewing Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC). Certainly, one of the highlights of our living here is our greater ability to travel by bike.

The Bicycle Friendly America program, administered by the League of American Bicyclists, collects data in:
  • Engineering: Physical infrastructure and hardware to support cycling
  • Education: Programs that ensure the safety, comfort and convenience of cyclists and fellow road users
  • Encouragement: Incentives, promotions and opportunities that inspire and enable people to ride
  • Enforcement: Equitable laws and programs that ensure motorists and cyclists are held accountable
  • Evaluation: Processes that demonstrate a commitment to measuring results and planning for the future
During the 2013 Spring BFC awards on Monday, Ashland’s status as a BFC was upgraded from Bronze to Gold. According to the League of American Bicyclists, there are 259 BFCs in 47 states.
